To be honest, I’ve been sold on Starlink pretty much since it was announced two E3’s ago. I love space/flying combat games and this one looks to be putting some fun spins on it. Today brings about a new trailer, featuring gameplay that’s more focused on the worlds you’ll be exploring (rather than space), and it looks absolutely gorgeous.
I can’t wait to dive into this game and start blasting away. More than just an arcady flying shooter, this looks to bring some depth to it with diverse worlds to explore (kinda like No Man’s Sky) and a story that sounds like it could be a lot of fun. October can’t get here quick enough!
In Starlink: Battle for Atlas, you’re part of a group of heroic interstellar pilots, dedicated to saving the Atlas star system from the Forgotten Legion, an evil robot force. Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers a whole new gameplay experience: build your own modular Starship model, mount it on your controller, and take part in epic space combats. Equip your model with different parts and your Starship changes in game in real time. Assemble your fleet, mix and match your pilots, Starships and weapons to create your own play style and defeat the enemy.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas arrives on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 16, 2018.
